. it's not a real bill that funds -- it's not an appropriations bill that funds the government. it's a way of basically avoiding government shutdown and i think the reason mr. rogers doesn't want to have a discussion on how to avoid the sequester is because, again, it's very close to a government shutdown because people can't agree on a way to do it. one thing we didn't discuss i think that's actually important for people to understand is that the sequester actually would affect a continuing resolution because the sequester would cut overall government spending by, you know, $1.2 trillion over the next nine years and this year would be $85 billion. so i think hall rogers, the way he would present it would be he would write -- the government would be funded the same level it was funded last year but a sequester takes effect, it's going to cut off the amount of -- >> the amount of money the appropriators have to work with, andy taylor, are they a part of this process? >> well, it's unclear how all this will work and part of it is, as roxannea and i were discussing before we talked to the
